This is the second book in the first series I've read from Amy Lee Burgess and I really must say that she totally impresses me. That really isn't as easy as it might seem to do. If I could give this book and series a better than 5 Hearts than I would. The amount of emotion that this author can put into words is just incredible.
In book 2 of the Wolf Within series, readers meet again Constance "Stanzie" Newcastle and her new bond mate Liam Murphy. "Grandfather" Tobias has confessed to tampering with the breaks on Stanzie's car, causing the accident that killed her former bond mates. The Councilor that Stanzie and Liam advises asks Stanzie to come back to her pack town and speak with Tobias before he is giving his punishment of death for his crimes, but as usual the Councilor has more in mind than just giving Stanzie closure.
Liam isn't too happy when he hears what the Councilor has in mind, because Tobias has alluded to the fact that he did not act alone and that not only Grandfathers and Grandmothers are killing members of various packs.
The visited to the safe house of Stanzie's old pack town is like an emotional roller coaster and still she must try to find out which one of her beloved friends felt that they needed to not only kill Stanzie's bond mates, but also her.
This isn't a series for someone who is looking for a fun loving whimsical romance, but for those who like to did themselves into a good mystery and emotional story this is a series worth reading.
Something's rotten in the Riverglow pack.
Still learning more about each other as bond mates and adjusting to their new roles as Advisors to a Councilor, Constance Newcastle and Liam Murphy must deal with the ghosts of their past.
A quiet weekend in Boston is anything but that, when Constance comes face to face with the betrayal of those she considered the closest to her. Everyone has secrets, and wherever Constance goes, she has a knack for uncovering them. The only problem is that some secrets are deadly.
